The Internet Insists the Babadook Is a Queer Icon and I'm Babashook

Taylor Henderson

Yes, you heard right. The Babadook is now a queer icon.

You might be wondering "Wtf?" or "How did this even happen?" or "What is wrong with those damned Millenials?" I've got quite the story for you. Let's go back...back to the beginning...

It all began on Tumblr when someone claimed that the 2014 film The Babadook was listed in the LGBT section of Netflix. Tumblr users defended the genre choice, "Whenever someones says the Babdook isn't openly gay it's like?? Did you even watch the movie?" Another user added "It's canon basically. I mean he created a pop-up book of himself for the drama of it all???" Another replied "The B in LGBT stands for Babadook. Everyone knows this."

Well the theory has spread like wildfire and has now taken over the entire internet.






Hey Babadook, if you're reading this, let's get brunch sometime!
